So our UPS delivery guy came in one day two weeks ago...he is very friendly and always chats for a few minutes as we sign for deliveries. How are you doing I ask. It's been getting busy lately he says. Why is that I ask. He tells me that the tourists have returned and they are all ordering things like new patio furniture and mosquito machines from costco.
Whats this? Mosquito machines...hmmm...we get lots of mosquitos. I tell him with skepticism that I've heard they didn't work. Oh they do he tells me. He knows because he has one. He gives one warning - they must be set up very early in the season.
Hmmm. After he left, costco.ca appeared on my screen and very my own mosquito machine was in my online basket.
A few hours later, with buyers remorse, I call the mosquito machine manufacturer. The skepticism was back. Does it really work? They convince me it was a wise purchase, it works well. Skepticism now gone, I am once again looking forward to my new bug machine. ...Maybe I'll need a second if it works really well.
Later in the week, while I'm in the office, I hear someone come in the door. The UPS man had a delivery. I then hear "did you order a mosquito machine????". A non believer. Yup, I sure did. The UPS man looked at us both and tried to defend my purchase. Though I didn't actually see the 'rolly eyes'...I'm pretty sure it happened. Yes, the same skepticism I had. Mr UPS tried to reassure me that it would work, he did warn that it needs 4 'c' batteries, of course, batteries not included. "C" being an odd size, took a special trip to home hardware. As I write this it still hasn't been assembled/set up but now that we have the batteries, we will do soon.
Guess we'll find out soon whether they actually work. Here's hoping.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
